Wow, some very cool images this week. It was a toss up for me this week between Don and Mr ejrj. I have decided to go with ejrj6586 because I like the humorous aspect of the image; but really, some great images all around so thanks everyone!

Congratulations folks. Nice images. I do have to hand it to Allen to produce a truly low key image or at least an image where so few if any values (zone system) are above zone IV. I have zero low key images in the Canon collection. Oddly enough there was a debate concerning high key such that high key is not simply an image with all high tones but requires lighting saturation in the frame; literally blowing out detail in the frame. Since low key is an absence of light you would literally have to shoot into the darkness of night to obtain a real low key. The debate has not been settled either and most likely never will.

Nice going ejrj....... And great entries from all. I am not really good at high or low key photography so I came in to this challenge blindly :)
